Environmental Science, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors/Minors/Specializations

A major in environmental science is primarily designed to prepare students for employment as environmental scientists by government agencies, industry, and environmental or engineering consulting firms. This major also prepares students for admission into graduate programs in biology or environmental science. This program of study is reading, oral, and writing intensive. Environmental science majors earn credits from life sciences and physical sciences that explore both facts and epistemologies employed by scientists. As a result, environmental science majors are not required to take the two Scientific Perspective courses. The final grade for courses composed of a lecture and a laboratory section will be a composite of the two as determined by the course syllabus.

Because success in the sciences depends on a strong foundation in mathematics, biology and environmental science majors are advised to follow course sequences tied to their math placement. The course sequences for biology, environmental science, and medical technology majors are available from Math and Sciences Department academic advisors and are also on the Saint Leo University website.
